PLANning Oakland’s educational future


The Bay Area Parents Leadership Action Network (PLAN) are taking an ambitious step toward improving the dialogue between Oakland’s public schools and parents by hosting the first-ever teacher-parent summit on April 26.

This Thursday at 5:30pm, at the International Community School (2825 International Blvd., Oakland), nearly 100 parents, teachers, school administrators and educational leaders will gather to discuss how to improve the education system for the most at-risk children and youth in Oakland’s communities.

By bringing parents together with the very people who shape their children’s lives, PLAN is hoping that Oakland’s education system will finally favor the young. No matter the outcome, the conversation needs to happen.
